Yes, that's what I meant. It is hard to track if the reloading has been effective or not. > Does this have a precedent in the code? data_checksums in guc.c is an example, it is marked with GUC_NOT_IN_SAMPLE | GUC_DISALLOW_IN_FILE and its value is updated with SetConfigOption() when the control file is read. The idea would be to do something like that with LoadedSSL. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
